Request for participation in Pittsburgh, PA

Hello all,

My name is Erik Dahl and I am a design researcher at MAYA Design.

I’m currently developing a new CGM device and associated pc software for a major medical manufacturer.

We are currently testing some prototypes and designs for the pc application and we are reaching out to the user community for help.

We are located in Pittsburgh, PA and will be conducting the session at our offices in Pittsburgh on December 10-12.

If you are interested in participating and are able to come to our offices between Dec. 10-12, please contact me and we can make specific arrangements.

Obviously, you will be compensated for your time and effort.

I hope to hear from you soon,

I hope no one will be offended by my request for help. I am reaching out to you to allow the user community to have input on a device that you may be able to use in the future. We believe in a process of human centered design, which is why we are asking for your help.

Erik…I just found your post. I am in Pittsburgh and might be interested if not too late. Is this the iPro from medtronic?
